Customer Testimonial:

Steve Yearsley, Production Manager, Bevex Limited

I approached Nexus Cooling because they offered a simple solution with competitive pricing and a fast turnaround.

Nexus Cooling helped me by offering the correct product that suited our unique application. After discussing our requirements Nexus carried out a full site survey and provided accurate data to show that their specification would work.

The result was a trouble free installation that was completed within 2 days.

One thing I liked was their attention to detail in every aspect from specification to delivery and commissioning, they even visited a week after the installation to check that everything was running correctly.

I found the experience to be very satisfactory and I would recommend Nexus Cooling to people who need a professional company that cares about the services they offer and their customer’s satisfaction.”
